We stayed for 3 nights and booked a Deluxe River View room with balcony overlooking the river. It really is worth paying that little bit more for the balcony. Busy Bangkok seemed so peaceful from up there and after the hustle & bustle of the day / night times, it really is a lovely escape. You wouldn't believe you we're in a busy city.
We couldn't fault anything. The staff cant do enough for you. the rooms are comfortable, spacious and clean and the location is the best, in my opinion, in Bangkok. Just around the corner from The State Tower, Patpong & China Town and just a short taxi or Tuk Tuk ride away from Koah San Road and Bangkok nightlife.
The pool is fantastic and gets the most sun of all the hotels on the river. The Peninsula (opposite) seemed not to get any sun at all due to the high rise buildings, but the Shangri-La is positioned so that it gets the sun all day, which is great if you fancy taking a day away from all the hustle & bustle a chilling by the pool instead, especially if you get a bed overlooking the river.
Overall, fantastic value, excellent service and location - I would go as far as to say that this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in.
